Bundle of Balloons using Balloon Celebration

Have you heard about Shannon West's (trainer for Stampin' Up!) challenge for herself to bring birthday cards back?  Well, I am excited to be participating in this challenge to send out a Birthday Card to everyone I know!  What does this mean?  I need LOTS of birthday cards!  

When I think of birthdays, I think of two things: cake and balloons!  This card features the second!  Balloon Celebration is perfect for not only birthdays but a lot of other occasions!  I am really loving the new bundles in the Spring Catalog and this is one of my favorites!  This bundle includes the stamp set and the coordinating punch!  Love!  All of this cuteness for only $37.25!
Let's jump right in and check out this card I made!
Wondering where the paper is from?  It's from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.  It comes with 48 sheets!  You get four sheets of each of the 12 patterns (and it's doubled sided)!  If you LOVE paper, this pack is for you!
I added some extra balloons to the inside of the card, because why not?!  Check out the supply list below and hop over to my online store!  Don't forget that every $50 order earns FREE products from Stampin' Up!  Plus EVERY order gets a thank note from me!!  Thanks for picking me as your demonstrator!

Birthday Blooms Pretty Card

Happy Sunday!  I am excited to share this card with you using the new stamp set called Birthday Blooms.  I enjoyed watercoloring the flower using my Aqua painters and ink.  It's hard to tell in the picture but I added some glitter paper on each side.  All of the stamps come in this stamp set too (which I love)!
Are you wondering how I have a perfect bow?  I used the Jute Ribbon.  At first glance it is super thick, but when you cut off the edge, you can pull the fibers apart and use it individually.  It is a little bit thicker than regular and holds a bow perfectly!  Don't forget coordinating your envelope liner so everything looks all together and pretty!  
The finishing touch is for the mailman... a little bit of stamping on the envelope!  Yay!
Check out the information below for all of the specific card details.  Thanks for following me!

Welcome Spring Catalog and Free Items with A Nice Cuppa

News Alert: the new catalog has launched!!  Did you know with every $50 purchase between now and March 31 you get an exclusive and free item?  This time of the Stampin' Up! year is called "Sale-a-bration".  If you are one of my customers and have made a purchase in the last six months you should have the catalog in your hands already.  Haven't seen the new catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure?  Look on the right for links to both of them!  

I'd like to sure a few new cards with you... one using my favorite stamp set in the new Occasions Catalog.  It's called A Nice Cuppa and has a coordinating framelit set called Cups and Kettles.  Lucky for you and I, you can get this bundle of stamps and framelits for a 15% discount!!!  Check out the links to my online store at the end of the post!
I loved this card created by Julie Davison so I cased it almost exactly!  Over break I was sick (of course, right?) and did a lot of case'ing since my brain was pretty foggy.  This stamp set also has a matching DSP stack called Have a Cuppa that has all sorts of "tea party" prints!  I am not a huge coffee drinker but I do enjoy a nice "cup of tea" every so often!  Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray combine to create a beautiful card. 

If you purchase the Nice Cuppa Bundle, coordinating DSP and matching cardstock pack you will earn a FREE Sale-a-bration item.  I have the PERFECT choice for you!  Links are below!  Check out this card:
